I am a member of the Secular Franciscan Order and every year my local fraternity does something called the Rite of Extraction. You can find a detailed description of it here, but, in short there are three baskets, one containing names of saints, one containing virtues and one containing bible verses on strips of paper. After invoking the holy spirit, each member of the fraternity has a piece of paper drawn for him or her from each basket.
The saint that was drawn for me was St. Pope Pius X, about whom I new next to nothing. I am supposed to walk with this saint throughout the year, so I figured I needed to learn more about him. Fortunately, Popes write a lot, so all I really needed to do was to find the various encyclicals, etc that he had written.
You can, of course, find these at the Vatican website, but I don’t find navigating the site particularly easy, and I don’t find reading against the background color particularly easy, either. Then I found another website called The Papal Encyclicals Online. Here you can download various documents from popes and church councils in various languages and in various formats (including mobi and epub so you can sideload them onto the e-reader of your choice).
Pax et bonum
